Product Description


Does your laundry detergent grow on trees? If it does not, then you are transdermally poisoning yourself on a daily basis! 

Did you know that the product that you use to wash your clothes that come in direct contact with your skin, not just during your waking hours, but while you are also asleep, is the worse poison you could expose yourself to?

All laundry detergents that are traditionally formulated to clean and sanitize your sheets, and clothes contain a long list of chemicals that are highly hazardous to health. All these chemicals have been identified by research as xenobiotics, and in Ayurveda, we know them to be slow poisons, or garavisha. Garavisha slowly spreads into the body so that you won’t feel anything for weeks, months, or years. But that chronic and/or autoimmune condition that you suddenly wake up to one fine morning will be its gift down the line. Isn’t it time we stopped poisoning ourselves? Why use health-hazardous chemicals when we can use the detergent that mother nature intended for us? Soap nuts (Sapindus mukorossi) grow on trees, that grow wild all over India and Asia. They are natural cleaning berries (the seed is discarded and the shell is used) whose shells release saponins, a natural substance that works much like soap for removing dirt and grease residues from clothes as well as other surfaces. It can be used with hot or cold water. It’s been used in Ayurveda for ever as part of formulations for washing hair! I have been using it in my SVA HerbRich Shampoo for years. 

Soapnuts are biodegradable, eco-friendly, sustainable and hypoallergenic. They clean and soften your laundry. They are also the best thing for babies! Strands of Vetiver have been added by Vaidya Mishra to give additional freshness and cleanliness. With the Soapnuts, you can not only steer clear of toxic hazardous chemicals that poison your household, but you will also avoid polluting your environment and nature with toxic chemical residues that disrupt the plant and animal cycles on earth. Soapnuts are compostable, sustainable, and fragrance-free. You will never want to use anything else after you see how bright it will make your whites, and bring back the color in your colors, adding softness and freshness, and keeping you garavisha-free all year round! Mother Nature has always given us all that we ever needed, and more! Isn’t the greatest show of gratitude for her gifts the actual use of those gifts, so we can protect our lives and the environment she created for us to thrive in? 

Directions for use:

Soapnuts can be reused for wash the same day. Each soapnut pouch can be reused for wash until the soapnuts disintegrate - around 10-12 times each pouch. 

Use the small pouches for cold/warm washes. Optional: add 1 tsp of detergent for the cold/warm wash for additional cleaning power.

Use the big pouches for heavy soiled hot washes. Optional: Add 2 tsp of liquid detergent to heavy soiled hot washes for additional cleaning. 

For delicates that require cold hand cleaning, let a small pouch of soapnuts sit in hot tap water for 5-8 minutes, then add that water along with the soapnut pouch to your hand wash. Let it soak for 30-45 minutes, and then clean and rinse as usual.  


Soapnuts are great for whites and colors, cotton, wool, and silk.

They are great for people with sensitive skin, and skin allergies. Also great for babies! 

Soapnuts are safe for septic and gray water tanks. They help reduce residual chemical build-up and odors in washing machines. They can be used equally in regular or High Efficiency washers. Approximate number of washes per pouch is 10, for a total of a 100 washes per purchase of one bag of 5 large and 5 small pouches.

  1. Clothes are soft and smell lovely 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Oct 2020

    I absolutely LOVE this laundry soap!! My clothes feel soft and smell so nice, I've actually had a couple people ask me what lightly scented essential oil I'm wearing, and it's actually just the laundry soap :)

  2. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Oct 2015

    I was not happy with regular hypo-allergenic detergents and tried the crystal wash balls too. After using this detergent was excited to find my clothes being so soft to touch. All my clothes are much nicer to wear due to the softness and cleanness. This is the answer for those bothered by chemical detergents and those who want very clean clothing.
